What's Coming March 9-10 to the Dolly Johnson Antique & Art Show?

The bluebonnet leaves are up and at 'em and so are 75 exhibitors for the March 9-10 Dolly Johnson Antique & Art Show. From coast to coast, they are packing their best finds for Fort Worth. What's coming to the show?

Quality always comes ---and it comes in wide mix of styles, classic to modern. This Eames Surfboard table was bought at last year's show.  
A French-Primitive-Modern mix will arrive with Vickie Kienast Antiques.
Then we look for style-setters who created the looks that you see in home decor magazines, such as Indiana's Lisa McQueen of Queenie Tin Mirror Co. Look at these fabulous mirrors and frames, some tin, some 19th c. gilt.
Then we whip into the mix a couple of brand new dealers, such as Remnants & Revival, doing their first show ever.

Then we top it all off with something wacky like the vintage life-size Barbie and Ken coming with Pinkie's, a new shop in the Fort Worth Stock Yards.

So from far and near, here they come. Put it on your calendar for Friday March 9, 9 am-7 pm and Saturday March 10, 9 am-5 pm at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in the Fort Worth Cultural District. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of the 49th Annual Dolly Johnson Antique and Art Show, which will soon be here!  Please share with a friend.

The Inside Scoop

 On Friday March 9 and Saturday March 10, 2012 the Dolly Johnson Antique & Art Show will throw open its doors at Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Center for the 49th year. Look for 75 top exhibitors from California to Idaho to Florida, unpacking antique and vintage finds including Americana, French, English, Art, Jewelry, Garden, Industrial, Primitive, Western and Mid-Century Modern.
     "So far," says Show Director Jan Orr-Harter, "I know that furniture will range from a 1750s primitive to a 1970s Milo Baughman table. I look for the hardest-working, most creative dealers in each category of merchandise, from all over the nation. And then I push them to bring their very best finds at their very best prices."
